31. NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL LIBRARY–NATIONAL AGRICULTURAL TEXT DIGITIZING PROGRAM
DESC: NAL and 45 Land Grant Libraries have conducted a cooperative effort to test the feasibility of using optical scanning and text recognition technologies to capture printed agricultural materials in machine-readable form. The resulting image and text data were then published on CD-ROM discs for distribution to the agricultural community.
